4 Coincidences Implying My Dad’s Death Was God’s Will

My Father passed away a long time ago suddenly on May 27th 2004.

3 weeks prior to his death we were hanging out on a Saturday night and discussing death. I was 10 at the time and he was 66.

We discussed how we wished to die, and my answer was in my sleep, his answer was suddenly.

We both wanted to go painlessly as does everyone.

And that’s better than dying a slow and painful death.

We talked about a friend of his who died suddenly and my Dad told me – “anyone can die at any moment without warning, nothing is a guarantee.”

In the 3 weeks leading up to my Dad’s death I had the feeling that his days were numbered, and that he could die suddenly at any time.

May 27th 2004

It was an ordinary morning at school, I was 10 and in 4th Grade.

On the yard with a friend of mine, my friend asks “how old is your Dad?”

I said without thinking,

“So old he’s probably going to die today.”

And then I forgot about what I said.

My Dad came to pick me up at school and as we walked down the street, he suddenly collapsed of a massive heart attack.

I called an ambulance but it was too late, there was nothing they could do to help him.

The 4 Coincidences


I said my dad was “probably going to die that day,” and he did. This was not the intention obviously, but it’s a sign my intuition was right on point.


I joined Army Cadets in 2006 and the unit number I joined was “2784” – the date of my dad’s death was 27/5/04 if you merge the 5 and the 0 you get 2784.


The school play on May 27th 2004 at my school was “Hamlet” – the grade 6 class was playing Hamlet on the stage at my school while I was informed of my Dad’s death at the hospital. For those of you that don’t know – Hamlet is a play that involves the Death of Hamlets father.


My Dad was exactly 66.6 years old on the day he died. I’ll let you be the judge on what that could mean.

Sometimes when I look at coincidences I notice that they are there to tell me that God has a higher plan for all concerned.
